The Barricade Boys - Christmas Cabaret
7 December 2017 - The Other Palace
Gorgeous harmonies, top-notch solos and pitch-perfect ensemble singing, all combined with a well-chosen programme, provide a sumptuous, musical feast for lovers of fine singing.
'tis unmanly grief
6 December 2017 - Theatre N16
Wonderfully well-acted and superbly directed, this pithy and profound play makes us consider how we can deal with grief and support others trying to cope with unbearable loss.
5 December 2017 - Waterloo East Theatre
Felt like many TV sitcoms - more than able acting and direction, but just not enough comedic juice in the script to provide the sort of rib-tickling humour that the season demands.
King Tut - A Pyramid Panto
28 November 2017 - King's Head Theatre
A polished and suitably potty panto that has all the necessary ingredients for a melodiously mirthful and frivolous night out.
The Butch Monologues
21 November 2017 - Soho Theatre
Humorous as well as sad, this is an engaging and important piece which throws a spotlight on how gender, sexuality and self-image interact and impact on some people's life struggles.
